What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

It was a very personal quest for me to heal myself of a nameless, invisible wound. The road to becoming a therapist is ongoing, and so far it has been circuitous and meandering at times, and more recently, driven and focused. I changed my career a few times, but felt I was getting closer to counseling with every job. Currently I feel I've come to a vista and have some foresight and direction. I am inspired by those whom I have encountered, who through phrase, or timely sentiment have shifted my perspective indelibly. These "encounters" germinated a thought, and grew a curiosity in me for human interaction as a means for all manner of growth.

Work History

I have been building a specialization in helping people through old trauma and recent traumatic experiences that seem to rob them of joy, and mess with their interpersonal and occupational lives. People often have symptoms they are not aware of; those are the ones that get us and keep us from experiencing the full-range of emotions, and our full potential. Erase these, overcome them, get through them, and there is a satisfying life waiting on the other side.
